here it is it still looks like a Cayman but one that’s been drawn with sharper pencils it still has the engine in the middle power at the rear and it still costs about 50,000 pounds it’s the same story inside where thankfully Porsche hasn’t messed with all the things we liked about the old car I’ve still got three pedals in this lovely Wiggly one light thing to change here but if you delve deeper you’ll find a million teeny tiny upgrades for starters the Caymans Big Brother the 911 has given up its steering and brakes the lower rear suspension arms from the last generation came in GT for the anti-roll bars our large diameter all around the front Springs an our variable rate rear tires well they are 12 millimeters wider much of which is not interested what is interesting is more horsepower the Cayman S now has 345 of them and that extra horsepower also means something else if there was a fault with the old Cayman it’s that it didn’t have quite enough power to explore the limits of that lovely mid-engine chassis this new one however not all day long but trouble is was enjoying this as much as I should do allow me to explain that there is the old came in s6 in the normally aspirated engine and it sounds like well judge for yourself that is engine sound perfection if you are staff punky great intake noise it sound like that but for this new came and Portia ditched the lovely old six-cylinder engine for a new turbocharged four-cylinder engine and it sounds like an old beetle this is a big deal because I’m sorry but the way a sports car sounds is a huge part of its personality it’s the same as humans voices matter I mean take same Rod Stewart and put him on mute and he’s just a Scottish bloke with ladies hair
